viewers in the united states and around the world. i'm fareed zakaria. centrally involving the attempted christmas bombing in the united states, before we get to it, i want to give you some of my own thoughts about that attempted terrorist attack. senator dianne feinstein says that she believes the united states government should overreact rather than underreact to these kinds of events. isn't that exactly backwards? the purpose of terrorism is not to kill the few hundred that are attacked. but to terrorize the tens upon tens of millions who watch. terrorism is unique as a military strategy and that it depends for its effectiveness on the response of the society. for it to work all of us have to respond with fear and hysteria. so far we are doing just that. i don't meaning to suggest by this that the system worked. obviously it didn't. when u.s. officials got information from the terrorist's father they should have immediately checked if he had a visa and hut him on a no-fly list and not allowed him to enter an airplane with a bomb, makeshift bomb. these are all mistakes and sh

on the border is clarity. the united states and the afghan government are facing multiple adversaries. there are multiple enemies. there are criminals. there are members of the taliban. there are members of al qaeda. and then there are tribal pashtun groups that are jockeying for power that had been doing so since the duran line was drawn between pakistan and afghanistan arbitrarily, separating tribes. and to be able to figure out who your adversary is, who is attacking you, requires you to engage the indigenous populations. it requires you to spot, assess, recruit, and train spies and launch them into the populations so that you can get accurate, eyes-on information to be able to target, because from that location, they have been targeting successfully and killing members of the hagani group, al qaeda, and senior taliban leaders. >> all right. so, some of the reports here, ken, is that the suspect was brought in as a potential informant, that they were going through the process of determining whether he could become one. what do they do to understand whether that is possi
